Why?

The link that used to take me directly to the page I administer now takes me to a feed of posts from all the pages I follow (which, by the way, does not load on my 7th generation iPad with the latest iOS), and I have to go through an additional link to get to MY page. Why make things more difficult instead of easier? It’s like you’re going backwards rather than forwards.

Update: Thank you taking out the extra step to get to the page I administer. However, one of your recent updates has caused a different issue. Our church has been live-streaming worship services since the pandemic got so bad in March. We found that the way to get the best sound quality was to have a transmitter plugged into the output of the sound system & a receiver plugged into the charging port of the iPad we’ve been using for streaming. This worked great until shortly before Thanksgiving. We have discovered that the Facebook app now only allows the sound for live videos to come from the microphone of the device being used for the video. Ugh! There is no way (that we have discovered) to get the sound to channel through the receiver for the sound system instead of through the device’s microphone. This results in a lower sound quality for the video.

App is useless

Facebook had become basically unusable for months. Many users repeatedly post the same issues without any response or resolution from Facebook. I’m an IT professional it appears the app is incapable of keeping up with the volume, maybe server issues. The app freezes constantly and crashes. Isn’t working at all while on wireless have to turn off my wireless to have any hope of being able to review my notifications. Anytime I get a new notifications it throws me out of where I am and back to the beginning of my notifications. Then I have to start all over again paging through the hundreds of notifications I receive to try to find where I previously left off which is next to impossible due to the endless freezing and crashes. Notifications I previously reviewed continue to show unread making it impossible to figure out which ones I’ve reviewed. The app has gotten totally frustrating to use to the point it’s taking me several hours a day just to get through notifications, there aren’t enough hours in the day to deal with Facebook which is slowing becoming a full time job to deal with. It’s a good thing it’s free because no one would pay for software that doesn’t work and provides no customer service or issue resolution. They constantly make so called updates that break previously working functionality. The updates are unwanted by the users, what we want is a reliable app not a bunch of bells and whistles that do nothing to improve the user experience.

Hackers

I think there’s something new going on with hackers or people trying to do illegal things... here’s the thing, my mom has been getting a lot of weird text from guys, and you might say, everyone goes through that, is normal, but here’s the fishy things, not only those this guys have only google pics and by that I mean, they take pictures off of google and put them as their profile pics and more, something like catfish, what’s more, interesting is that every guy that hits her up has the same sentence, with the same catch-up line, “ I was trying to find an old friend on Facebook but I found you instead” and when I mean every guy, IS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, at some point, we thought it was a coincidence but then we realized a major fact .... every one of them some how knew my mom's personal information, not that she has a daughter, or her religion this are basic things that people put on Facebook, but they would know things that my mom does not put on social media! we’re starting to get a little freakout, to whether they want to kidnap, hurt, or hack her phone, I would appreciate it if Facebook would fix this issue and start paying attention to when people report on a conversation or person, I know there are millions of people in the app but if you would notice the ones that sound more creepy, fishy or important please notice it, and fix the issue.
